Having problems with your 2000 Dodge Stratus ?

My 2000 dodge stratus 2.4 DOHC won't start? I was driving on the highway and for a good 3 miles I felt three mini-misfires going off in my engine.

A friend serviced my 2000 3.3 dodge grand caravan. He changed the power steering pump, and the CV joint. When we went to start the car the dash lights came on, but no start. ( no click no nothing). We changed the ignition switch and tumbler, nothing, we changed the starter motor, and when we went to start the car, still nothing, we tried jumping the battery and now the tach needle went all the way over and is stuck at 7K Rpm. We disconected the battery and the needle is still stuck.The car STILL

Hello, I was diving and the check battery light came on, all power functions operated poorly, and the power steering was operating poorly as well. I parked and turned off the car when I tried to start it again it was completely dead. I replaced the battery, the car is running fine, however the light is still on and the steering wheel is very hard, I checked the power steering fluid and it was fine, what could it be? Thanks, AV

I have a 92 Chrysler new yorker 3.3 engine 160K mileage. One morning, I stopped at a red light and the "check gauges" light came on during idle. I immediately noticed my oil pressure gauge lower than usual. Upon pulling away from the traffic light and accelerating, the light went out and the oil pressure came up to normal again. The oil pressure drops as the car idles, sometimes to the point of triggering the "check gauges" light then returns to normal during driving. The oil level is full and t

Received a recall letter regarding the electric power steering one week ago and a message came on the dash about problem with power steering. When I tried to start the car all I hear was a clicking sound. I tried jumping it but still only a clicking sound and we tried a fully charged battery starter to give it more juice but still heard only the clicking sound. The car is an automatic and is in my garage but it will not shift out of park into neutral. It's frozen in park. Is the electrical probl

My 2002 Hyundai accent is doing many things....the power steering is gone... The battery light and brake light are on on the dash..... The heater blows only cold and it says it is overheating. All if it started at the exact same time... I cranked the car and pulled away from the gas pumps, the belt made a loud squeaking for quite a while, the lights on the dash came on, the power steering was gone, as well as the heat, and maybe a mile down the road it started to overheat. What could be wrong???

Power Steering The Power steering on my 2005 Saturn Ion goes out. I will turn the car on and drive between 5 and 35 minutes before a little light flashes and the POWER STEERING comes up on the Dash. After this I have no power steering until I restart the car. It's a repeating cycle? I've tried changing the fuses to no avail...

My car died quietly, while I was driving. I was exiting the elementary school zone, making a left turn and moving steadily at 10 MPH. No sputtering. No jerking. Just lost the power steering and had to guide it to the curb. When I try to restart it, the instrument panel lights up, and one by one all the lights go off...except the oil light. Changed the oil two days prior. Used a Fram PH16. Checked the oil. It is full, and the car was not hot when it died. Battery is good and car cranks over norma

Check engine light is on, service emissions system flashes on console, oil light will flash and car cuts off at random, sometimes car will backfire and cut off. Lots of exhaust when trying to accelerate or sometimes when starting car. Ran a computer diagnostic check for error codes and came up with: PC0113, PC1111, PC1153, IP2711, AC1347, RS0038 and RF2560. Can you tell me what these codes mean and where I should start with repairs?

Your Jeep should only have one serpentine belt. That belt powers the alternator, water pump, and power steering pump. You should not drive without the belt. I would guess one of the pulleys locked up and melted the belt. ... Cars & Trucks

I was driving my 1996 Subaru Sportswagon manual 100km/h in 4th gear, bringing the rpm to about 5,500 or so. It was a mere test, comparing the diff of the Sportswagon and a Datsun I drove earlier that day. When I reached high speed, the 'check engine' light came on, the oil light and the Warning light. I also lost power steering. The car was still running because the rpm was showing but rolling I took the car out if gear so it was running at an idle. Almost 6-7 seconds after I got these warnings
